I wrote this poem when I was in HSC for a couple of months in 2015.  It tells how Jesus is with us at all times.

TO MY CHILD

When your eyes tear

I will wipe them away

When you have no strength

I will lift the weight

When you feel unhealthy

My healing hands will be upon you

When you feel sad and in darkness

I will bring you light

When you feel cold

I will wrap My arms around you

When you want to escape

Run into My arms

When you feel alone

I will be your friend

Love Jesus.

These words are like a warm, cozy, comforting blanket for the soul. So vivid that I can feel Jesus' arms wrapped around me. What a blessing it must have been for you to receive this image at a time when you were hurting and struggling. Thank you for expressing and sharing that intimate gift with us!!

Oh Pat!!! How beautiful!!! And how blessed you were to be able to write those words during a difficult and trying time in your life. How blessed we are to be able to read them and absorb them in this trying and difficult time. God is so good.
Thank you so much for sharing!!

Thank you for sharing this, Pat. It's a comfort to be reminded of the light in the darkness, Jesus' arms around me in the cold, Jesus being my friend when I'm alone, and Jesus lifting the weight when I have no strength. I have felt a lot of darkness, weight, and loneliness over the last couple years. Reading this today, I can also feel the light, comfort, and love of Jesus. Thank you.
